O M G... White water rafting!!!!

I accomplished something from my bucket list!! White water rafting on the Ocoee River in Cherokee National Forest near Chattanooga. I was scared to death the whole trip that I was gonna fall out of the boat... But overall, it was awesome!  I think I might have enjoyed it more if I hadn't known that the class IV rapids were near the end... But then again, I'd always been wondering what was worse to come. 
I did NOT fall out, which was a prayer answered!!! I know I would have drowned. (I hate water in my face...yes, I can swim, and I had on a life jacket,  but I  don't like swimming underwater...but that's another blog post). My boss fell off and went under & had time while she was under to think about what she was doing and how she could get out if it!! So yes, I would have drowned. The kids want to go... But if one of those flipped out, I'd have a heart attack!!!!
So I came thru rapids named Double Trouble, TableSaw, PowerHouse and Hells Hole. So yep, you'd be nervous too with these waiting on you down the river.

Lukas being silly

We are at apple barn. He's dancing around on the sidewalk. So I made a funny comment about our little ballerina girl. So then when Morgan elaborated, he goes for her. She runs after him. He runs away, right into a patch if ROSÉ bushes. I crack up!!! Bless it!!! He had thorns all in his knees.

We (Tom, Me, Lukas & Morgan) were sitting in Dixie Stampede. Tom dared them to scream 'The South will Rise Again' for $10.... Mind you, we are sitting on the North side!!! She done it!!! And then took off to bathroom. !!! She said 'The South will Rise Again yee yee'. So funny!!!

Diet for now

Me & Morgan stuck to it throughout the day today. I got really weak a couple times thinking about a Golden Dairy hamburger. Lol🍔
We had Sweet Potato for supper. Added maple syrup- a little, and cinnamon. I kept laughing at Morgan cause she said, this tastes like nothing! I had scraped my potato clean & here she is can barely eat it!! 🍠 Lol So not sure if I can do this... But we are on the third day! Got 11 more to go. Surprisingly, I'm not hungry. Just cravings. I keep repeating the mantra, we only eat to stay alive... Food is not supposed to be an enjoyment!
Tom really doubts I can do this... I really need to do it. 😕 Right now me & Morgan are keeping each other strong.

NEW LIFE...Maybe?

Starting today, I'm changing. Well at least that's the way I feel right now. Me & Morgan have decided to try a diet she forced me to purchase off Internet about 6 months ago. So not sure why today we decided to start it. Well probably because we have been watching biggest loser. So we went grocery shopping today...we are gonna start on a 7 day cleanse... It is basically a raw food diet.  So I am on the way home with a car full of...broccoli... romaine lettuce...broccoli....1 orange...broccoli...almonds...broccoli...apples....broccoli... LOL I don't like alot of if you can't tell, I do like broccoli...but only with cheese...and I am pretty much out of luck.  So I was hungry, wanted to come home and eat...guess what I get to eat, BROCCOLI!!!! LOL

All jokes aside, my resolve is strong right now, but it won't take long for it to be gone... me and Morgan took "before" pictures....  yes, I know, she doesn't need to lose any weight!!  

Getting Married

Well, gotta record this while it is still fresh on my mind...On Dec. 27th, Tom and I went to the court house and got our marriage license...meaning to get them to marry us there, then we would go to Pigeon Forge... Well Surprise surprise...they don't marry people at the courthouse in my county...?? What? For Real? She said very nicely, "were you all planning on doing it today?" Yes,.. "well, you'll have to find someone to do it."  So luckily, Tom had a minister buddy that he wouldn't mind... so we called him.  He said, I'm in my jeans..  Tom said, Im in mine too!!! Lol...He then mentioned that he ws the only one at home, so we needed to find a witness... Called Tim my brother who was at work close to the minister's house and he left for a few minutes to come witness it. 

So we are standing in front of the minister, he has his Bible...he says "I don't have my ceremonial book with me, so I have written some things down, I hope that's ok...?"  Of course... so he looks at his Bible/paper and says, "Well gosh, you all have been thru this before and know what all God says about marriage, I don't need to go thru any of this... Tom, do you take this woman to be your lawful wedded wife, to have and to hold, to cherish and to love and to blah blah blah"  Tom said I do.  He asked me the same and said you may kiss your bride!!! LOL So in about a minute and a half, we were married!!!

Marriage, a Gift from God...

This marriage is my the same man...the devil tried to destroy us...but God won again...I'm happy

I'm Back...

So I didn't have any intention of stopping by here on the first day of the new year...2013.  I am starting this year blessed far beyond measure. I was reading all the things God has done for me over the past 4 years and now it has all been worth it.  Tom and I got married (again) on Dec. 27...(a whole nother story).  We are happy, God's plan is in place...and oh the things I learned over the past 4 years.  Learning to depend on God was absolutely the best. I can't explain the things God has done for many many lessons...Simply amazing! I heard a song last night from a child, singing "I've had a Wonderful Life"..."If I died today, I'd have to say, I've had a wonderful life..." and truly, the pain was so hard..the loneliness so bad, but it was totally worthwhile... so, I'll try to post  more this year than last year...LOL, this post is def more than last year... :)
